Our Agency History:

In January of 1992, three agencies came together in order to better serve our Kaufman 
County customers. Jack Rymer of J. Rymer and Associates of Terrell, Betty Nash Hendrickson 
of Temple Nash Agency of Kaufman, and Jerry Rowden and Jim Shipley of Rowden-Shipley 
Agency formed the Rowden, Hendrickson, Shipley & Rymer, Inc. Insurance Agency. 
With multiple offices from the beginning, the agency continues to serve our customers in 
Kaufman County and beyond.  

The addition of Craig McLemore in 1994 allowed the agency to open an office in 
Seagoville, Texas early in 1995. With an office in Dallas County, the agency began serving 
customers in the metroplex while holding on to our roots in Kaufman County. 

The year 2000 brought retirement of Jerry Rowden and Craig McLemore becoming a partner. 
Through the years, Bobby Aga joined the agency bringing years of experience in life and health insurance. 
The ability to offer life and health insurance services rounds out the services we can bring to 
our customers. Wayne Babovec joined our agency as a producer experienced in personal lines, 
farm and ranch, and commerical insurance to provide better service to our customers. 

2012 brought many changes to the agency. Jack Rymer and Jim Shipley retired. Wayne Babovec became
a partner with Craig McLemore and Betty Nash Hendrickson. There were also many additions to the staff
towards the end of the year.

Our staff is licensed and educated to help our customers get the best insurance at the best price. 
In a time of changing insurance forms and changing insurance companies, we strive to serve our 
customers' insurance needs.

Our agency was recognized by the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas as among the longest 
established agencies in Texas. Temple Nash Agency was established in 1898 by 
Temple Nash, grandfather of Betty Nash Hendrickson.
